This is a favourite place for my kids. They can climb and explore. This visit is the first time they've been interested really in what all the rooms of the Abbey were for. Unfortunately our visit was cut short by the biting wind but I know we will be back here later in the year, it's the perfect picnic spot.

She got this outfit that used to belong to her big brother. She absolutely loves it! It's odd to me, having a tomboy, because Cora has always been so girly. At barely turned one year old we got a bag of clothes given to us for her, I still remember her joy at all the pretty dresses inside. She started stripping off to try everything on. Maia dotes on her big brother though. They both love her but Calvin is the one who looks out for her. I love watching the various relationships between them all.

Today was Maia's first day. She did great! Didn't even ask for me. She asked to make a "baby dolphin" so that's what she came home with. She's going to go once a week so that I can teach Cora and Calvin to swim. I'm looking forward to spending some time with just them. :-)

It's taken a long time but we've finally finished the school room. I love it, feels like a nice cozy room. Of course, the fairy lights on the ceiling help that. :-) The couch is comfy, and the kids love their desks. Things are more organised, I just hope they stay that way!
Today we're doing our first lapbooks. The subject is "All About Me". I thought it would be the best to start with, a great momento to look back on. Here's a few pictures of them starting to do the individual projects. We're waiting for the file folders to do the lapbook properly. Looking forward to seeing it completed!
